Game where teams/players get a time limit to burst all of the water balloons using the darts


Large flat board suitable for water balloons to be pinned to
Water balloons
Water supply


With the balloons filled and distributed around the board, the team or player should throw darts from a set distance away and try to burst as many as they can within the time limit. The team/player that bursts the most balloons wins

Vary the throwing distance to suit the capabilities of the section.

Alternative 1: instead of a time limit, only allow each member of the team a certain number of darts.
Alternative 2: have balloons of different sizes on the board and allocate points to each balloon, with smaller balloons worth more points. The team with the most points wins.
